"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"
The global gas turbine market size was valued at USD 19.74 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 20.79 billion in 2023 to USD 27.57 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.11% during the forecast period.
A gas turbine can be defined as a combustion turbine which is a type of continuous and internal combustion engine. It consists of a combustor, an upstream rotating gas compressor, and a downstream turbine on the same shaft as a compressor. There is one more component called turbo fans that is used mainly to increase efficiency and to convert power into either electric or mechanical form. These turbines are very effective and are replacing the traditional gas-fired or oil-fired power plant with combine cycle power plant using such turbines primarily running on natural gas.

Growing Aviation Industry and Increasing Consumption of Electricity is a Latest Trend
The demand for electricity is increasing globally and governments are highly focused on decreasing the consumption of fossil fuels as they increase emissions around the world. The governments in several countries are replacing coal-fired steam plants and combined cycle power plants with such turbines. These turbines consume natural gas as their primary fuel. The gas based power produce lesser greenhouse gases.
The aviation industry is expanding rapidly across the world, thereby creating a huge opportunity for this market. Emerging economies focus on improving the aviation industry. Rising investments in the aviation sector is expected to create a growth opportunity for this market.
Some of the developments regarding gas turbine for aviation sector is as follows:
Increasing Focus on Nuclear and Coal Driven Turbines Replacement by Gas Turbines to Fuel Industry Growth
Coal-based power plants emit large amounts of harmful gases. The emission of such gases contributes largely to heating. The nuclear-driven turbines also generate large amounts of toxic gases which lays long-term harmful effects on the environment. Governments in several countries aim to reduce greenhouse gases and replace nuclear and coal-driven turbines with gas-driven turbines. These turbines usually emit lower toxic gases than coal power plants.
In 2019, around 2,044 GW capacity of coal-fired power plants were operating in the world. By 2021, China is operating around 1,082 coal-fired power plants which largely contributes to increasing air pollution. In February 2021, Junliangcheng Power Plant has added around 650 MW of gas-driven turbine power plant which is a step towards the transition from coal to gas.
Rising Electricity Demand Across the World Augmented Growth in the Market
The electricity demand is widely increasing around the world because of increasing urbanization and infrastructural development worldwide. Industrialization is also increasing across developing countries. In many countries, various smart building, smart cities projects have been initiated which further increases the electricity demand. To fulfill the electricity demand, the public and private sectors are increasing power plant capacity either by installing new power plants or by expanding their power plant capacity. Such projects are majorly installing gas-driven turbines as they are efficient and less harmful. Governments have also implemented stringent emission norms, provoking companies to adopt gas-based turbines on a large scale. Thus, this factor is expected to drive the growth in this market during the upcoming years.
Volatility in Natural Gas Prices to Hamper Gas Turbine Market Growth
Natural gas prices are affected by disruptions in the supply of natural gas. Geopolitical tension is a disruptive factor that causes uncertainty regarding the availability or demand for gas. This can cause higher gas price volatility. The cost of gas within the U.S. has fallen drastically because of shale gas exploitation, but elsewhere within the world, the value remains relatively high. Most of the countries in the Middle East region account for a significant share of natural gas reserves. It is a highly unstable region due to political and cultural issues. Moreover, from the past few months, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the demand for natural gas decreased significantly. Thus, the costs of gas also dropped, which creates a negative impact on th market growth.
The 150-300 MW Segment Held the Largest Market Share Due to High Demand from Power Industry
Based on capacity, the market is segmented into 1-2 MW, 2-5 MW, 5-7.5 MW, 7.5-10 MW, 10-15 MW, 15-20 MW, 20-30 MW, 30-40 MW, 40-100 MW, 100-150 MW, 150-300 MW, and 300+ MW. The 150-300 MW segment dominated the market in 2020. These capacity turbines are primarily used in the power generation industry. As the focus of the power generation industry has been shifting to reduce harmful gas emissions due to environmental safety awareness. The use of gas-driven turbines is increasing in these capacities around the world and thus, this factor shall drive growth in the 150-300 MW segment.
The small capacity industrial turbine segments of 1-2 MW, 2-5 MW, 5-7.5 MW, 7.5-10 MW, 10-15 MW, and 15-20 MW are leading due to the straightforward availability of gas. The small capacity gas-driven turbines with capacity 1-2 MW or 2-5 MW are very useful as they are modular and can operate on two fuels. Such turbines are widely preferred for combined heat & power plants and co-generation plants. Such CHP and co-gen plants are widely installed in residential, commercial, and industrial segments around the world.
Heavy Duty Technology is Estimated to Hold Large Market Share Owing to Rise In Manufacturing Plants
In the technology segment, the market is divided into heavy duty, light industrial, and aeroderivative. Heavy-duty technology held the major share of the global market in 2020. The number of manufacturing plants is growing rapidly along with the integration of large-scale economic zones across developing nations. The expansion of captive generating power stations is increasing across the world due to the rising demand for electricity across the industrial sector. These power stations help in fulfilling electricity demand, which, in turn, shall drive growth in the heavy-duty segment.
Aeroderivative segment is expected to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period. The high availability of highly mobile and flexible technologies drives the growth in the aeroderivative segment. The aeroderivative segment has a diverse application portfolio that includes utility generation, marine propulsion, and district heating.
Combined Cycle Segment Holds Significant Market Share Due to High Demand from Power Plants
Based on the cycle, the market is segmented into simple cycle and combined cycle. The combined cycle segment is likely to hold a significant market share in this market in 2020. The growth is mainly attributed to effective waste heat utilization, environmental proximity, and operational efficiency. The demand for such turbines is increasing from the power plants. The combined cycle plants are built in phases, first, the simple cycle plants are constructed and then converted to combined cycle gradually.
The simple cycle segment is likely to foresee growth in this market during the forecast period. The simple cycle plants are cost-effective as compared to combined cycle plants and they are easy to construct and maintain.
